Those words would change adrenaline junkie, Alice Harrison's life forever. She's a party girl that doesn't believe in love until she meets a man that only writes about it.
Seth James escaped his overbearing father and moved into one of the James family's vacant condos, hoping to create the music he loves in peace. But the fragile calm he's envisioned shatters when a tiny woman with a world full of energy bounces out of the elevator and nearly takes him out.
With the patience of a saint, Seth seeks the dark that keeps Alice from enjoying life. He challenges her to exorcise the demons in her past in order to discover the true meaning of love. But when the walls fall down, the hidden deceptions will bare the ugly truth about a woman drowning in sorrow and a man who may not know how to be her hero.

My Review: 5 Stars
I think this is the most intense book I've ever read. Rachel brought me to my knees with some of the scenes in this book. I wanted to scream with Alice, wanted to kick the living shit out of her father and her step-mother for how they treated her, wanted her to find some peace in her life. The characters in this book will make you feel things so deeply, I loved them all. Alice is so fucked up - not her fault, but she's trying to be someone new. Seth is fucked up, but in a completely different way - a different kind of pain, a different kind of loss. They are drawn to each other like bees to honey. From their encounter in the hallway until the last page, I wanted them to find a way to be with each other. I loved that Deacon and Evan were so supportive of Seth, Alice and Gabe. I loved the relationship that Seth and Gabe had that continued to grow. These characters will keep me coming back again and again. I will want every book that has them in it. I am so all over the place with what happened in this book to the characters, and I'm so looking forward to hearing more ( a lot more, please!) about them in future books. Rachel had me hooked from the first page, her writing is so intense and real, I loved it.
She has a philosophy about love. It must devastate or it isn’t truly worth loving. She hopes that you all find your devastating love and cling to it with all your heart!
